Hope this helps..

This happens to my son. He has coughing asthma meaning that he rarely gets the shortness of breath associated with asthma but when his allergies act up, his coughing is worse in the evenings and if it gets bad enough then he gets the shortness of breath - then he has to use his inhaler. His coughing is usually not that noticable during the day. You should visit a doctor though.

Yes, adults can get asthma and I am living proof of this. The older I get (I am 41) the worse my allergies are getting, and last year I started having to use an inhaler as my simple allergies turned into asthma! I found that I also have a dry cough at night that I use sips of water to relieve. Not sure what it's from though.
